What Really Happens If the Supreme Court Strikes Down the Mandate?
"We can game this out, but first you have to understand just who would be most upset by a ruling like this. The answer is: insurance companies. You see, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires insurance companies to accept anyone who applies for coverage and to charge everyone (with some specific exceptions) roughly the same rate. This works fine if insurance companies get a random selection of customers. They can easily figure out the average cost of care for this random group and then charge everyone that average, plus a little extra so they make some money. Nice and neat.
But without a mandate, they're unlikely to get a random selection of customers. Instead, healthy folks will probably stay out of the market and buy coverage only when they come down with some kind of serious illness. This is a disaster for insurers. They aren't getting regular premium payments from these customers, but they still have to pay for their million-dollar proton beam therapy when they get prostate cancer. Too much of this kind of behavior and they'll be out of business."

Give it up.

I don't think I'm alone in my time-saving strategy of first looking at the links in your posts before even reading them.

Mother Jones, Media Matters, Talking Points, Huffington, MSNBC, NY Times. USA Today's "Oval Orifice".... when I see these, it's time to move on. And I normally do.

Your posts are "Fly Over Country" like the Left Coast or Obama's Chicago.

Tell Bobby Ginn dummy or google Bella Colina which is an vacant subdivision of his featuring homes in the millions range that are falling apart and will likely meet the bulldozer before they meet a buyer. Here's a clue, he wasn't spending his own money but some banks.

Pretty extreme dontcha think?
the Roman Catholic Church has Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms, but not a get-out-of-jail free card....

for their own good, the Church should either purge homosexuals from the priesthood or assure that there is no unsupervised contact...

DAN RIEHL: Priceless: WaPo blames constitutional law instructor Obama for possible ObamaCare Failure.“We can’t know for certain how the Court may rule on health care this week. But watching Washington as usual play out driven by a sense of doom is still something of a hoot. If it does go down and Obama fails to win re-election, he won’t have any positive legacy at all in the end.”
Perhaps if Obama had ever written any scholarly articles on the Commerce Clause, he’d have had a better understanding. But then, he never wrote any scholarly articles on anything. As former Obama colleague Richard Epstein said:“I like Obama but I reject the suggestion that he is an intellectual. He is an activist merely mimicking the mannerisms of an intellectual.”

"Let's stop giving tax breaks to businesses that ship jobs and factories overseas and let's reward companies who create jobs and manufacturing right here in America," Obama said. "Mr. Romney disagrees with this. Today it was reported in the Washington Post that the companies his firm owned were pioneers in the outsourcing of jobs to places like China and India. Pioneers."
The president told the assembled crowd that he was running for reelection because of a contrast between "top-down economics" and "middle class-out economics."
The Romney campaign quickly returned fire, accusing the president of using "false and discredited attacks to divert attention from his abysmal economic record."
"If President Obama had even half of Mitt Romney’s record on jobs, he’d be running on it," said Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul. "But President Obama has the worst record on jobs and the economy of any president in modern history, which is why he is running a campaign based on distractions, not solutions.”
Earlier in the day, the Romney campaign dismissed the Post story as giving the false impression that the firms that Bain invested in helped move jobs overseas.

He didn't say that though did he? He correctly stated that it is the Executive Branch's responsibility to execute our laws. "Execute", "executive" ... get it?
Read the Constitution.
Well perhaps you should re-read it - he did not say that
He said something like "the presidents core responsibility is to make law"
or something equally retarded... Besides what you said agrees with me

the President has a responsibility to either veto or SIGN BILLS INTO LAW

that's part of the constitution and his OATH,

yet Obama chose to ignore BOTH and simply by Memo and Selected Enforcement bypass the Legislative branch and the will of the people
and grant citizenship to 16-30 year old illegal aliens in an attempt to swing an election in his favor...

what kind of quandary will this make if Obama wins by a very slight margin due to states like Florida and California
i think they have 45 electoral votes each or some such.
So suppose he barely wins these two states because of the formerly illegal aliens now Citizens by Obama decree.. these states push him over just barely in electoral votes....

It would mean he just won an election by creating voters to vote for him

this is NOT called a Free and Fair election
and if any country on earth did some shit like Obama is doing
(which they do in Russia and 3rd world countries)
Then the US would more than likely NOT RECOGNIZE the new leader
and would be calling for the UN to monitor the next election to make sure it was fair and free

Getting our economy back on track is righting the ship, not arranging deck chairs.
So when are you right wingers figuring on helping this country recover?
If we invoked your plan, how does a few million more unemployed help? How will you pay for the extra costs associated with those additional layoffs?
But hey, the whole thing is likely a waste of time. The right wants to deregulate & reduce revenues (just like they did to get us where we are today). The SC says our politicians can be openly for sale. Republicans want tax breaks for offshoring jobs. It is now good business practice to think of only short term profits. And dumbass right wingers think the US has enough oil not to be slaves of oil rich nations forever.
What you fail to understand is the crash is going to happen. Propping it up with printed money and borrowing is only prolonging the inevitable and making the crash even worse. To keep digging the hole is insane. Best to control the crash by reducing government spending at a pace not too detrimental to the economy. There will be much pain but it has to be done. Our future is playing out in Europe if we don't get spending under control. A big crash or a controlled crash, one or the other, but a crash is coming.

Apparently those weird enough to dump $100K into a really good looking car need to understand that they need to drive the damn thing regularly or the batteries will go south leaving them with a handsome replacement bill. Who gives a shyt besides your dumb azz?
That S African mutt is gonna mine all the helium the moon has to offer and put all the oil, coal and gas companies out of business, where have you been out picking mushrooms?
Oh, and BTW pal, volunteer fire departments are not as common as your stupid azz thinks.
the Tesla is designed with batteries that draw power when the car is not in operation....

the Tesla has no provisions to recharge a fully-discharged battery...

so if you drive your Tesla to the airport and leave it there a few days without being hooked up to a charger...you're screwed...

we have a volunteer fire department...they are very common here, except in the bankrupt cities...

Exactly, and furthermore; whosoever thought it was a good idea for the illegals not to have a driving license didn't think of the ramifications for everyone else. The licensed drivers have to pay more for unlicensed coverage; illegals are still driving; stealing license plates and stickers from other cars, etc. Let them have licenses so they can buy insurance and register cars.
I thought they were law abiding people that just came here to work. Stupid fck.
